Yes. There should be only one version left in KDE. I think it was kdelibs, 
amarok, strigi and kdemultimedia.

I btw. would propropes to do away with it and instead add one FindModule for 
each ffmpeg library because the package ffmpeg has no version. It is therefore 
impossible to check one. We could add a convenience FindFFmpeg.cmake file 
using components that calls the correct FindModules for the given libs.

I am currently at the beginning of a new contract which means i have not much 
time. I will join these efforts in 8 days or so and would be willing to work 
on this file.
